    The Ministry of Hume in Hawaii

    In April my family and I had the privilege of going on vacation with some of our extended family to Maui, Hawaii. We stayed in a VRBO house. To get there, one needed to turn left off the Hana Highway, just past the coconut stand, and go two miles down a dirt road. The house […]

    Proclaiming Truth in an Ungodly Culture We live in a world that is not exactly the way God intended it to be. Sin has corrupted it and some have chosen to forget God all together. In the midst of this complicated world we are called to proclaim God’s truth in the midst of an ungodly […]

    Behind the Scenes: High Adventure

    Experiences in the Trees For more than 20 years Hume Lake Christian Camps has been using adventure activities such as high ropes courses as tools for reaching people for Jesus. The question begs, why? Why participate in “risky” activities? Why challenge ourselves physically and mentally? Why push ourselves to engage in an activity that scares […]

    When “Thank You” Isn’t Enough

    Hume Staff Gather to Show Gratitude We all say “thanks” many times every day. Sometimes it means very little and other times we have so much gratitude that “thank you” only scratches the surface of how grateful we truly are. Two thousand and fifteen was quite a year at Hume with the Rough Fire growing […]

    Church Spotlight: Sierra Bible Church

    Why Hume? Over the years I have spoken with youth pastors that thought they had issues with Hume. None of them actually take kids to Hume, so for what it’s worth they would say things like “I don’t want my kids to go up and get a ‘Hume high’ only to come back down the […]

    Giving it Twice

    Consider a Charitable Remainder Unitrust During this past year, two couples used an innovative way to secure a lifetime income stream while leaving a gift to Hume Lake.

    A Larger Vessel

    Chapel Renovation at Hume New England I do not know when it was built, but I do know why. It is not anything special to look at but its beauty is neither in the walls nor the rafters. What makes it great is not in the furnishings or the fixtures. Its true beauty cannot be […]

    Changing Live On and Off the Field

    Football Camp  In 1995, Rich Cornford came up with the idea of bringing a handful of his football players to Hume Lake Christian Camps for a retreat. That year 13 players and two coaches from Wasco made their way up to Hume where they ended up sleeping on the floor of Rich’s parents home. The […]

    Campfire Stories

    Fire. It can be destructive and devastating. However, fire can also be inviting and life giving. As I prepared for the 2016 Vision Dinner Tour in February, I was reflecting on the Rough Fire. I thanked God that the 13th largest fire in modern California history, which surrounded Hume Lake Christian Camps on three sides, […]

    Here I Am. Send Me.

    Holiness. When we set out to discover the theme for Winter 2016 we quickly realized in our dialogue that the holiness of God is something that this generation has lost sight of. Even as we looked at our own lives, we quickly realized that we struggle to live in such a way that professes what […]
